SPLENDID SPEAKING: LATEST TASK SHEET
Most of us will be involved in situations where we need to
make a point or express a view, perhaps in a presentation,
during a meeting or in an interview. One idea to make your
contribution as powerful and memorable as possible is to
personalise the point you are trying to make. You can do
this by using an anecdote. Expressing your ideas or views
with examples of personal experience will make your point
meaningful to you and for the listeners. This podcast
features an interview with Raluca from Romania and
Genevieve from France and has an example of how an
anecdote can be used to great effect. Listen here:

HAVE YOU RECEIVED YOUR RESULTS?
Thank you to all the people who have contacted Flo-Joe to
let us know how well they did in the CAE exams. It’s been
wonderful to receive such good news from so many people.
Hopefully you’re planning to continue your English studies
and maybe you’re considering taking the CPE exam. If so,
don’t forget that Flo-Joe offers you the same opportunities
to prepare for the Cambridge English Proficiency exam both
through the free resources on our website and with CPE
Exam Success Plus.
If you’d like to share your success in a testimonial find

NEWSLETTER TIP OF THE WEEK
A weekly tip to help you achieve success at CAE. This week
we examine the idea of proofreading work.

As language learners, we are often told to read through our
work to check for inaccuracies in spelling, grammar, the
use of vocabulary or punctuation. However, it is often
quite difficult to notice our own mistakes, especially the
most obvious ones! If this is the case for you why not try
proofreading someone else’s work? First of all find
yourself a study partner. Then each time you complete a
writing task swap your work with your friend. Noticing your
partner’s mistakes will help them but just as importantly
will be great practice for you in spelling, grammar,
vocabulary and punctuation.

WORD BANK TEST

‘to work or produce something steadily but without trying
to do more’
‘to end a relationship’

the various forms of the following words:
‘consider’
‘nutrition’
‘reside’
‘observe’

If you have missed some of the days or want to sign up for
